If you are a novice in the art of model making, it is even more important to have the right equipment to facilitate your work and accuracy.
Scientific MHD is an online shop specialising in the sale of models and specific tools where you can find a selection of technical and useful pliers for your beautiful model creations.
Why use a pair of pliers in model making ?
Model building can be quite a long process and requires the correct tools.
Combination pliers are one of those versatile hand tools that you should always have at your disposal when you are doing manual work. The key features are cutting and selecting objects (when used as cutting), pulling, holding and clamping when using the flat part, removing and fastening when used as pincers and temporary clamping when used as a clamp.
These pliers are therefore ideal for a variety of different jobs and make a great all-round tool which is the perfect space saver. From a practicality point of view, this is important, as model making involves having many tools and equipment that can eventually be scattered here and there and take up a lot of room!

How do you look after your combination pliers ?
To keep your combination pliers in good condition, store them properly in a toolbox where they will not be damaged. In addition to this, we recommend cleaning your tools regularly with a cloth.
If you feel your pliers becoming a little stiff and difficult to use, add a few drops of oil to facilitate the opening and closing and to not slow down and hinder your projects. It's best to avoid the frustrating situation when your tools are not working properly and you're struggling to get a job done well!
